Holly's Sketch and SCS Colour Challenge Cards

We are having such nice weather here in Edmonton! Anything above freezing is always nice and considered a heat wave...especially in February...lol
This card I made today was for a sketch done by Holly aka Toy on SCS. You can find her fantastic blog HERE. This was for sketch #4. I changed it a little though. Guess what?! I used my Copic markers on it!!! Boy do they ever colour nice ;) Right now I only have 19 colours plus a blender but have 48 more coming!!!
Stamp: Stampendous
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Groovy Guava, WW, Imaginisce For Peep's Sake DP
Ink: Brilliance Black and Copic Markers
Accessories: Ticket Punch, Jewels, Wide Celery Grosgrain, Dimensionals
These next two cards were done for the Colour Challenge on SCS today. You were to use River Rock, Black and White. Sounded elegant to me. So I ATTEMPTED a couple of cards. I stepped out of my box. These are not my typical colours. I rarely use black on any card. I've had the same package of Basic Black for the past year and a half...haha!
Stamp Set: True Friend

I agree...fabulous job with the coloring!!! I haven't stepped into the copic realm...yet! ;) Your cards for the CC turned out very elegant!!! It's strange how river rock takes on a different look. Gorgeous!

Your colour challenge cards are wonderful. They're so elegant looking. I like the bright spring one too.
I'm enjoying the wonderfully unusual northern Alberta weather too....Fort Saskatchewan. :)

Holy Moses girl! These cards are totally awesome! That first one is so bright and cheerful and the coloring - wow! That is all I can say! Are the letters the stamp or are they separate? As for your challenge cards, they are absolutely gorgeous, totally elegant, and look like you have been doing cards with black forever - LOL! I don't use this color much either, but you totally blew this challenge away! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex
